Does it really matter who it is? It's an offensive tackle and not a WR. About the only way the WR on the practice squad was going to do anything is if half the WR's on our roster got the hammy bug at the same time (and if that's the case we're screwed anyways more than we already are).

Cindy Boren: The Redskins seem to calculate the effort it will take to win each week and then go out and give exactly that amount...

Good quote. Zorn needs to correct this by setting the right tone - and that tone probably isn't the whale sounds he has on his iTunes.

I just saw Playboo and they reviewed some plays from the Giants game. I knew the defense had a bad tackling game, but the plays they showed players were just whiffing on the tackles. They showed the play where LL had the 15 yard penalty. D hall had Jacobs lined up for a two yard loss., but missed. Then Horton had an angle for a two yard gain, but missed. The team needs to get physical in practice this week.

Portis is a part-time back
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on September 15, 2009 7:03 PM ET
During training camp, the Redskins said they were going to use Ladell Betts a lot more this season. In Week One, they actually did it.

Betts was on the field for 39% of the team's 49 offensive plays, while Clinton Portis was on the field for 49% of the plays.

We've given Portis a hard time in the past for complaining about playing time, so we salute him accepting the new order quietly this time around. Perhaps he's happy because he's still getting the ball plenty when he is on the field.

Portis had 18 carries in only 24 snaps, gaining a total of 72 yards from scrimmage.

Look for Portis and Betts to both get more plays overall this week at home against a Rams team that provided little resistance to the Seahawks in Week One.

-------------------------------------------

Hmmm...Portis got the ball 18 times out of the 24 he was on the field huh. Predictable? You be the judge.

The point is being able to run on first down allows you to throw on first down. The only way to show that you can run (and by virtue of those runs have a wide-open 2nd down) is to do it.

Posted by: OrganicWater | September 15, 2009 6:50 PM

The thing is, that does not work for the Skins. Most teams will put 8 in the box and dare the Skins to beat them. Against a good D like the D the giants have Zorn needed to throw the ball on first down and make yards to open up running lanes.

Except for the 1st run of the game, the redskins were getting closer to 1-2 yards per attempt- no where near the 4 that would make your plan work.

This team needs to establish the pass, then mix in the run. Without establishing the pass, the Skins are too predictable. IMO.

I'm hearing alot about what we suppose to do to the Ramsthis week, this kind of talk is the reason we lost to them last year.I hope the Skins pay little attention to this,cause if we tackle and play calling is the same as last week ,the talk about the replacement of the leaders of this team won't be talk anymore it will be a sad reality for the few.

Hopefully it was just to prove to the 'higher beings' that running Portis was futile at this point. Especially with the 2009 offensive line. Hopefully we will now see shotgun on 1st down, and short passes, screens, and draw plays ...

"Portis played 24/49 snaps, and had 18 rushing attempts. Betts played 19 shaps, and had 2 rushing attempts."

So maybe Portis should become a receiver and Betts a runner?

Maybe they are both old, and lack the speed and versitility a fresh back would bring.

Ooops: did I say CJ Spiller again?

What I Think ... About the Randle El Option Call

terrible call. terrible timing.

I watched the replay a few times and I don't think Randle el even had time to get a throwing grip on the ball. there was a guy right in his face and both receivers were blanketed. It's so easy to say a guy should just throw it away, but if it was tipped or he was hit while he was throwing it, then he should have taken the sack.

It's a cop out to say randle el should just throw it away, it was a horrible call.

that call put us "behind the 8-ball" and we never got out. Every thing after that is moot.

how about running it again. don't you usually set those plays up? it was the 2nd play.

I like Zorn and I realize if he takes full responsibility he might get fired, but honestly I think that play killed our chances to win.

Coach Xorn, I have a friend whose friend overheard the Rams's defensive coaches planning for this Sunday. This the conversation as my friend's friend recounted it:

Rams person: I think Redskins are going to try to run the ball

Rams other person: Agreed. Let's defend the run as best as we can. What is the running strategy?

Rams person: They like to run into DT or DE

Rams other person: OK, let's put some DT and DE's out there. Also bring in the LBs to give them bulk.

Rams person: How about their passing game?

Rams other person: (long pause) what passing game (loud laughter in the background) just cover their trick plays, that's all

Xorn gambled when he didn't need to. Then on 1st and 10 from our 3, he turned into mr. Just-run-3-safe runs!! There was nothing safe about calling 3 runs in a row on your own 3.

Our receivers are not utilized to our advantage. We must be calling such predictable routes that even rookie DB's can cover them day in and day out. And the pass calls are so wimpy, we don't stretch the field to get the DB's out of position or our of breath. It is really simple, just watch other teams call offensive plays

I just read the Bog re Campbell's comments.

It seems this team is better at explaining/justifying its performance on local radio shows throughout the week than it is at making plays on Sundays.

If the players (particularly the QB) want fans to get off their backs, they should go out and win some games and earn their paychecks.

Mostly they sound like a bunch of crybabies.

It appears that Blache and Zorn are a good match. Zorn cannot surprise anyone with his playcalling and Blache cannot catch the offense offguard with HIS playcalling. Xorn's predictability must be effecting our defensive strategy as well! Could that be the reason we cannot stop anyone on third downs? Teams must love playing against us.

From washingtontimes.com

I just don't why the JERK reporters of washingtonpost talk too much about the playing time of AH.

Here is the breakdown of player participation against the Giants

DEFENSE

(64 snaps, which includes three penalties)

DL: Albert Haynesworth 46, Phillip Daniels 43, Cornelius Griffin 51, Andre Carter 61, Lorenzo Alexander 17, Kedric Golston 26, Jeremy Jarmon 9.

LB: London Fletcher 64, Rocky McIntosh 57, Brian Orakpo 54, Chris Wilson 10.

DB: Carlos Rogers 59, DeAngelo Hall 62, Fred Smoot 12, LaRon Landry 63, Reed Doughty 30, Chris Horton 40.

Analysis: Other media will make a big deal out of Haynesworth's playing time but he played 72 percent of the snaps -- that will be the norm this season. Just because he's making $41 million guaranteed doesn't mean his playing time should jump to Andre Carter territory. Every team in the league has a defensive tackle rotation. ... Fletcher was the only defensive player to play every snap ... Interesting situation at safety. Horton started but played only five snaps in the last six drives.

OFFENSE

(49 snaps, not including fake field goal)

RB: Clinton Portis 24, Ladell Betts 19, Mike Sellers 18.

TE: Chris Cooley 43, Fred Davis 13.

WR: Santana Moss 47, Antwaan Randle El 32, Devin Thomas 14, Malcolm Kelly 32, Marko Mitchell 1.

Analysis: Portis should be fresh for the Rams -- he carried only 18 times. Randle El played more than Kelly, who started, so enough with the chatter about the Redskins having a No. 2 and 3 receiver -- it's basically Nos. 2 and 2A. ... The five offensive lineman and QB Jason Campbell played every snap.

I am frustrated with his playcalling, but I do hope that coach Zorn will succeed. If he could just see where the problems are in his playcalling, it shouldn't be that hard to fix it.

I just hope he doesn't become defensive and let his ego get in the way of success for him


Simply the playbook even further, maybe call the opposite play of what he was gonna call and see what happens.

In fact, he could use a random number generator and call plays randomly regardless of down and distance. That would certainly keep the defenses confused!

Kenbeatrizz - More plays by the offense and AH only needs to be on the field for 46 plays that will be the entire number of plays the D is on the feild. Remember Gibbs vs Tuna it was 4 possessions each team?

Nobody metioning Cartwright unable to find the ball on the on-side kick two steps to the right perfect angle behind the initial wedge and he would have not gotten Clobbered! and he would have had the ball. Look at the replay CLOSELY.

Where is Marko Mitchell? ALL he did was catch touchdowns and looked better than DT/ML how about making santana the slot receiver and have the 6'4" WR'ers on the out side?

While ARE still fair catches punts and tackes 10 yard losses on stupid play calling, leads skins receivers in DAC (dives after the catch). Cut him! Make a statement VINNY, JZORN.

Player of the game Haynesworth - made jacobs look small!! Goal Line Midfield it was great.If we had ANY offensive flow we win this game.

FREE BIG Tip to ZORN -
First PASS PLAY of an NFL season goes to your STARTING QB!

Bonus Tip - Don't give the Giants a SHORT FIELD. Let JCamp thrown one pass so that the giants start one possesion in their Territory!!!!

JC needs a coach with guts not one trying to set him up as a sacrifice!!

JC - NEEDS to learn a few CUSS WORDS.
Oh! Check this out True believer! - Cooley does not block anybody, people! Look at the money times in Big games and the big sacks. Cooley DOES NOT Block. Pretends to block or gives any real attempts to block. Fred Davis anyone! Anyone!

k.i.s.s.

portis had 18 carries in 24, if he had only had 19 carries we could have avoided the worst call of week 1

I think as a rule Portis should get at least 20 carries, at least until someone else starts stepping up on O

Kudos to Randle El for not turning the ball over after being sent out on a suicide mission.

Just throw it away, is the lamest cop out monday morning QB statement.

just score a TD on very single play.

Anyone who thinks we signed D Hall for his tackling abilities is lame. Anyone who thinks D Hall would suddenly learn to tackle is lame. Anyone who complains about C Rodgers hands is lame.

for anyone looking for a bright spot, I point you in the direction of #99, Andre Carter. Carter seems to bring it every other year -- meaning I'm wrong on him every year.

But his opener was special. He forced both turnovers. He stripped eli on the fumble and it was his pressure that had eli backpedaling, leading to the Rogers INT.

Not sure Carter was involved in 2 turnovers all last year. Nice to see him have an impact.

It was Hall, zeke, not Rogers. Otherwise I agree with your assessment on Carter seeming to be a bright spot.

Or my wife's question: "Why does Clinton Portis just run straight into the pile of guys standing in front of him?"

Why indeed...

Coach Zorn showed time and again during the game that he has little faith in Jason Campbell. When he was in the shadow of his own goal, he should have attempted at least one pass, particularly with all-out rushes coming. But no, three puny plunges into the line and punt. Most pro quarterbacks demonstrate their professionalism and poise by throwing from there. And the there was that plunge into the line from the Giants' side of the field on third and about 8. How disgusting. How humiliating. How telling. If Zorn sent that in -- one more proof of his lack of confidence in Campbell. If Campbell called it at the line, he was admitting his own lack of ability. He will not be here next year -- and thank goodness for that.

I'm so tired of Zorny!!! Im tired of talking about him he is a BUM in my book. The same for Blatche these are two guys who never wanna change anything up my way or the highway menatlity. Jason Taylor said it best about Blatche .. He gone do it his way,no matter what u feel is best for you. I agree that goal line thing made me change the channel. Where is Marko Mitchell 6'4 with 4'4 speed. how can u not play young guys redksins is almost th eoldest team in the leauge. We relyin gon FRED smoot as a safety he cant tackle my grandmother.. U have a young kareem moore who can tackle and Hit. But BLatche dont like young players or trust them .How can young guys be the future for the redskin if they never play in Big game..

They need this guy because if Chris Samuels or Heyer go down, the run game and the pass game (which we don't have) is lost for the season.

Danny Boy is finally gettin' it. Now, Danny go buy one more Tackle and a few Linebackers and Cornerbacks, pass-catching Running-Back, QuarterBack, D-Line, Safeties, Wide Recievers, TE, O-line, and most of all NEW COACHING STAFF.

Afterwards, jack the prices of you TICKETS for the fans to pay it for you.

And Danny Boy, you will still end up with a non-playoff team again.

It's hard to admit the truth:

1. Portis is an 'old' 28.

2. Betts at 30 doesn't bring anything to the table on third downs.

3. Moss is too small at 5'9 to be effective outside when given additional coverage. Note how Randy Moss and Larry Fitzgerald can still get up and fight for balls and catch them even when closely covered or even doubled? Moss goes through too many games being completey shut out to be a true #1.

4. Zorn does not have confidence in Campbell and that shows in the playcalling. That lack of confidence from your own HC has to be a lot more galling for Jason than any catcalls from the fans.

5. When viewed as a unit, the Redskins team to use Zorn's words 'stays medium' too much of the time. The team comes out flat against the Giants. Then when the game is over it's 'let's move on to next week' and 'there's 15 weeks left for us to prove something'.

When is this team going to develop any sense of urgency?

"The Washington Redskins announced today that they have signed tackle William Robinson to their practice squad. To make room on the practice squad, Washington released wide receiver Onrea Jones.


The 6-foot-5, 297-pound Robinson spent last season on Injured Reserve with an ankle injury after signing with the Seattle Seahawks as a college free agent out of San Diego State . He started at left tackle during his final two seasons for the Aztecs."

Robinson bulked up 17 pounds since last season. It is good that he has left tackle experience.
